A Satirical Canadian Invitation

By now, I realize that I have become an internet super-sensation. I have had one humor piece published in an obscure internet literary publication and my blog has literally dozens of readers. Naturally, this means I get approached by many powerful organizations. Literature publishers promise me the full "Hodgman-treatment," and certain public radio groups guarantee a "Sedaris-explosion."

Normally I turn these down, (I'm too busy saving lives in medical school), but I received an invitation recently that piqued my interest.

Pictured above: A satirical Canadian invitation.

Although I am well known for my "Canadian" style of humor (I cannot go a week without mentioning hilarious poutine anecdotes or Prime Minister Harper's political antics), I had to turn this opportunity down. According to the blood-pact I made last summer with the Northwestern MSTP, I am not allowed to receive any sort of outside payment while in the MD/PHD program (including, I assume, whatever a "cheque" is. I believe it is some kind of communist money used in Canada).

But you, my internet followers, get the special treat of some of my classic, satirical Canadian News headlines. Enjoy.
